Revolver Galería is a project created by artist Giancarlo Scaglia, which began in 2008 with the intention of boosting the Peruvian the contemporary art scene, and since, Revolver has been showing the most exciting new generation of artists from Peru and around Latin America.
From the beginning, the gallery set clear targets in its mission as a private platform for the exhibition, promotion and management of contemporary artists and worked to re-direct from the local scene and, instead, to aim towards the exchange and connection with the rest of the world, reinforcing the idea that it is the active trade of discourses that will articulate further development. Focused on its role as the catalyzing nexus between artists, critics, museum directors, curators, and collectors, Revolver reaffirms that the sum of these -resulting in intelligent art collection- will be essential triggers for the development of a wide range art scenario.
